When you think about your family… does your mind wander to the family home and the everyday moments and special occasions you’ve had together there!
Mine does….. and for this family it certainly does too!
When I spoke to Elaine about the photographs she most wanted I got the feeling that being at their home in Melbourne was absolutely the perfect location for them.
On the day, I knew we’d made the right choice! I walked into a house alive with people, chattering in every available corner from the front lounge to the back yard. It was fabulous!!! I just wanted to pull up a cushion on the floor to soak it all in!
I had a job to do though…. so after briefly soaking up the atmosphere…. we got down to the task at hand!
Here are some of my favourites from the morning. I’m drawn to those ones where a dash of personality is leaping out of the image……. and I hope they will all recall the moments they shared while I worked the camera.
A few hours down the track, we were done…. and everyone went back to their places in the family home to enjoy being “Family”.
Thank you to each one for welcoming me into their sacred family space…. ever so briefly!
